US international Joe Gyau has second surgery, could be out for year

Borussia Dortmund II winger Joe Gyau, one of the United States’ several youth playing overseas, will necessitate a second surgery to repair an injury sustained during international duty.

On Oct. 10 in a USMNT friendly vs. Equador, the 22-year-old tore his meniscus, and was set to be fully recovered at some point this month.

The Tampa-born kid took to Instagram to reveal that he was braving another setback.

Although he didn’t detail a time for his return in this post,  Dortmund II head coach David Wagner told German daily newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten that his player could sit out the remainder of the season because of his injury.

Gyau made his first-team debut against Eintracht Frankfurt on Sep. 24, taking the field as a substitute in the 74th minute. The match ended in a 2-2 result.

With how Dortmund’s has performed this season currently, a healthy Gyau may have enjoyed more senior-squad playing time in the second half of the Bundesliga year.

However, this obviously won’t happen now, and Klinsmann’s evaluation of the up-and-comer will also remain on hold.
